*sigh* I wish it were not true! But adults see a kid acting inappropriate-"Now the rest of you don't do that , y'hear?"

I'm actually respected at my PetCo lol. Everytime the manager of the fish department sees me he's like "Anything new to tell me about bettas?" I'm one of the few knowledged people. I always have to help someone at WalMart (suprise suprise).

I've seen him also tell people to stay away from betta bowls and go with tanks instead.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

In my local Petco, Petsmart, and Wal-Mart I've seen way too many times where people have thought it funny to see the males fight so they put them together in one bowl and leave them that way. I only caught a few people doing that and they quickly walk away and I try to separate the fish into their own containers again when ever I see them that way. I report it to the workers too saying they need to watch the fish more closely and keep an eye on the customers in the fish section more often. Most employees just give me a nasty look as if to say "Don't tell me how to do my job" in their minds but I see it in their reactions to my statements on their faces.

Yeah I was surprized he did not think they were females lol, but the people at my petco are not that bad about fish they have one guy that knows alot about fish that is there and another guy who is nice but does not know that much he does clean the tanks but thats about it.Who seems to be there all the time.The fish guy seems to not be there that much *sighs*.It's usually a lady that barely knows anything about fish(more of a dog person), and my petsmart has one girl who is really good with fish and I don't go there as much so I don't know everyone that works there.All and all my pet stores are nice but my meijer is evil there poor bettas are really hardy I never see a dead one but they live such awful lives dirty water and barely any food.

I never seen any of this thank goodness, but my stepdad said once that he wanted to put together and see what they would do. I REALLY hope wa joking, but I don't think so. He's very SLOW at times.
